Best-ever RAV4 November, strong Camry and Corolla sales among highlights

TORRANCE, CA--Dec. 3, 2012: Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc., today reported November 2012 sales results of 161,695 units, an increase of 17.2 percent compared to the same period last year on both a daily selling rate (DSR) and a raw volume basis.

The Toyota Division posted November total sales of 138,976 units, an increase of 17.3 percent on a DSR basis from November 2011.

"Replacement of vehicles damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Sandy is partially responsible for strong sales," said Bill Fay, Toyota group vice president and general manager.  "However, pent up demand, record low finance rates and exciting new products are also driving demand.  Approximately 40 percent of the vehicles we sell this year will be all-new or significantly updated models."

The Lexus Division recorded November sales of 22,719 units, up 16.8 percent over November 2011 on both a daily selling rate (DSR) and a raw volume basis.

"With nine new or redesigned models available for customers, Lexus posted its best November sales in five years," said Tim Morrison, Lexus vice president of sales. "Our momentum is extremely strong, and we will close out 2012 with a December to Remember."
